“Love is a fabric which never fades, no matter how often it is washed in the water of adversity and grief” – Unknown
As a wise man once said, true love never runs smooth. Too often we turn our backs on a loving relationship rather than face the adversity and find our way back to one another. Here at Life Resolutions Ringwood we believe in mending connections rather than discarding them.
Why is it that we hurt those we love the most? That love leads to extraordinary acts of sacrifice and compassion, and to incredibly selfish destructive behaviour? The answer lies in the strength of our desire. More than anything we want to love, and to be loved in return. When those feelings are thrown into conflict, we feel betrayed, angry and most importantly, humiliated. That feeling of humiliation hurts us deeper than anything we have ever felt before, a powerful surge of unregulated emotion. A surge that can lead us to hurt those we hold dearest to our heart. But even when we say harsh things and wound each other’s feelings, the love still remains. After all this love is the origin of the conflict.
Couples counselling is about recognising this fact and addressing the real issues. In doing so we help lovers find their way back to the loving relationship they once had, and can have again.
